Stemless glasses cause great controversy in the glassware world. There are mixed feelings towards this glassware design amongst wine enthusiasts, experts and sommeliers.
Famed glassmakers Riedel were the first company to produce stemless grape/wine specific glassware. Since then, stemless glasses have become increasingly popular with bars, restaurants and for use within the home.
Stemless glasses are suitable for both red and white wines, champagne and various other drinks. They present wine in a truly unique and striking way. However, it is argued that these glasses are best suited to red wine as your hand, which is wrapped around the glass, will affect the overall temperature of the wine.
Stemless glasses are much easier to store than stemmed glasses. The design makes these glasses easy to stack, and they will not take up too much space in cupboards. They are also dishwasher friendly which makes them extremely popular in bars, restaurants and pubs.
As well as being easy to store, these glasses are easy to hold. The glass shape is sturdy in the palm of your hand and fits most comfortably. Its stemless design does minimise the risk of breakage, and the narrow rim allows you to enjoy the full flavours of your wine.
